Dimitar Berbatov may Join MLS in Summer
Posted On May 6, 2016
Dimitar Berbatov is reportedly considering the possibility of joining the MLS in the summer.
The striker’s contract with Greek outfit PAOK runs out at the end of the campaign. He joined the club in the summer on a free transfer from Monaco. Despite having cost nothing in terms of transfer fees, the deal has been seen as a disappointing one from both parties. Berbatov has struggled for goals and this has led to a reduction in game time. He has managed only four goals in 14 league appearances this campaign. In his defence, the player says that most of the appearances have been as a substitute.
Due to the differences between the two parties, they are expected to separate mutually in the summer. Berbatov is understood to have received an offer from an MLS club, the identity of which remains a mystery. Since his contract runs out in a few months, he is eligible to talk with interested clubs. MLS has been on the rise in recent years with a number of former Premier League name representing clubs in this division. Berbatov may feel at home in such a scenario. The Bulgarian may not have the best scoring record, but he remains as one of the quality names ever witnessed by the Spurs supporters.
“Some media say you don’t want to play for PAOK anymore? This is why I am giving interview to you, and not to people who are coming up with stupid things like this.This is not true and with this kind of talks some people are trying to harm the team. PAOK is my team now and I fight for my team, even if this means a red card sometimes,” said Berbatov in a strange manner when questioned about the interest from MLS clubs at the possibility of staying at PAOK beyond the campaign.
